Abstract

An efficient black-tailed jack rabbit (Lepus californicus) survey method that yields large sample sizes with minimal effort would be use- ful to biologists studying the interrelationship between the jack rabbit and its predators. Such a method would also be valuable to land man- agers who are interested in the impact of jack rabbits on range and agricultural lands. Knowl- edge of jack rabbit abundance could be used to predict depredation problems before they oc- cur, allowing time to determine what methods to employ in an integrated approach to mini- mize damage.
